Tuesday Open Thread

  1. I ventured the opinion on Friday that signs of damage, confusion, and desperation, are showing in the Orange Horde. A recent poll showed that even now, the number of Georgia Republicans who say they will vote in 2022 has declined by 4%. 

    John Dean makes comments in a Salon article about the serious trouble the OD is in from the testimony of Michael Cohen and the documents that have been seized in raids. 

    Tr*mps’ attempts to alter the Georgia outcome may be the situation that  threatens him most. When Lindsey Graham denied calling the Georgia election people and telling them to discard ballots, they started recording the calls surreptitiously.

    Bannon is going down. The Jan. 6th commission is going to have him arrested, I am confident.

    There is much to encourage those who have been waiting to see justice brought to the traitors who sought to overthrow the duly elected government of the United States.


    1. What is the baseline for that projection, Duke?  Generally, there is a big dropoff between presidential elections like 2020 and non presidential contests.

      1. Washington Post's Philip Bump had a different take

        we’re getting Trump’s threat backward. Perhaps it’s not that Trump is threatening to withhold the enthusiasm of his base unless the party does the impossible thing he demands. Instead, he’s using the failure to do the impossible thing as the rationalization for why he won’t be able to turn out his base…. But if that base doesn’t turn up, Trump has his excuse ready to go.

        1. We all know that it's all about Trump. His big mouth going on about "election fraud" depressed Republican turnout in GA early this year and likely cost them both Senate seats there.

            1. Pretty much agree. I guess you don't really care how others perceive you when they don't exist in your thoughts anyway. It's only Donny in his strange little world, and I don't want to go there. The man is not well, and his thought processes are barely mammalian.  He was never fit to be President.

  2. For kwtree, wondering if you've received your copy of the latest "Lakewood Watchdog." The bloom is off the rose, so to speak, in regard to Ward 4 candidate Christopher Arlen, or whatever name he is using at a given moment. Also turns out he is a proponent of the Green Mountain Water board recall.

    He's got a checkered past in a couple other Western states. But if anyone questions his past, he says you're a racist.

    1. CHB,

      Don’t believe everything you read in the Watchdog. They have sort of a holy war going on against Christopher Arlen. As far as his name change goes, he did change his name to his middle name, which is legal and has been his name for decades, through his honorable service in the military, etc.

      And yes, Arlen was a proponent of the recall. I disagreed with him on that, and told him so. I also disagreed with him on A200, the slow growth initiative. As I recall, you’d be more on Arlen’s side than not, as you also opposed the initiative.

      But Arlen’s an honorable enough person that he stuck with the recall even though doing so probably hurt his council candidacy, because of the terrible governance the GMWD Board was demonstrating – violating open meetings laws, no financial transparency,  firing the good lawyer who got them a $150,000 settlement with the developers, and hiring Money Badger Scott Gessler, who will milk the Green Mountain Water District’s reserves dry with his exorbitant fees. Gessler’s already been late filing twice, and the developers might just win their appeal against the district – which was perhaps the point all along.

      The Watchdog has a definite agenda. The proprietor definitely has strong opinions, and doesn’t bother with any contradictory information. I know Christopher Arlen, and he is an honorable man, and will be a great contributor to City Council.

      Joe Neguse and Andy Kerr are the latest to endorse him. You might want to investigate a bit further before you start smearing a good man.


  3. 😂😂😂 ummm, who’s going to tell him Jefferson didn’t attend the Constitutional Convention? (I’ll concede that he may have emailed revisions from Paris).  The TX GOP has probably rewritten their history books to include Jefferson as a convention participant.


    1. Thank god future generations will be spared the burden of removing Ttump monuments and statues . . .

      (. . . and, fortunately his bankruptcy creditors have been doing a bang-up job up until now of removing his name from some of the other tacky edifices.)

      . . . And, we are all hoping for the someday return of sane persons, and respect for our country and its institutions . . .
